Fischer Racing are looking forward to their trip east as the FIA GT3 European Championship heads to the Slovakiaring near Bratislava for rounds nine and ten.

Three regulars Mikko Eskelinen, Christoffer Nygaard and Markus Palttala are set to be joined by Martin Matzke in the two Fischer Racing Ford GT cars.

“We haven't been at the Sloviakring yet and everybody in the team in really looking forward to it”, said Fischer Racing team principal Hardy Fischer . “New racetracks are always exciting and it's almost impossible to make any predictions. But at the last round in France, we showed a good performance in the races and the track in Slovakia should suit us a bit more, as it looks like a handling track.

“So I'm cautiously optimistic that we are able to score a good result in our first visit to Slovakia. We also welcome Martin Matzke this weekend to our team, who forms a really strong team with Markus Palttala. We raced against Martin in the GT3 European Championship and also in the ADAC GT Masters and know how quick he is.”
